Work continues on the creation of a memorial park to the once vital Black community of Fulton that was eliminated by urban renewal 50 years ago. Location: Goddin Street and Williamsburg Road at the foot of Powhatan Hill in the East End. Spencer E. Jones III and other former residents have pushed for a place of honor and remembrance for the community they loved and lost in the late 1960s. In the works for three years, the project to remake the site began just before Thanksgiving. Robbie Danil of ADDO Enterprises is spearheading the development that he said would take about six months. This is the first phase for which the city is spending about $925,000 to create a place of reflection with trees and other amenities. Additional work is planned in a second phase.
